(Micky appears at the 2 hour 39 minute mark.)
And here's Micky on the BBC Radio 4 program Loose Ends.
Micky is in the UK for International Beatleweek...
I was hoping to see the 8-button Monkees shirts (as designed by Gene Ashman) available at the merchandise booth during this year's concerts...just for the novelty factor. Surely they would have been an instant hit!
On Saturday night, the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood hosted a special event honoring The Monkees' 50th Anniversary, screening four episodes of The Monkees television series (from the new masters). A Q&A discussion with Micky Dolenz also took place and was hosted by Illeana Douglas. The episodes shown were "Monkee vs. Machine," "Monkees Get Out More Dirt," "The Devil and Peter Tork," and "The Frodis Caper." Both Andrew Sandoval and Rhino's John Hughes were also in attendance and later joined Micky onstage during the Q&A session.
In 1994 and 1995, Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz performed a series of concerts dubbed Together Again that preceded The Monkees' 1996 reunion. The duo's performance in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 6, 1994 was aired on 94.5 WWSW-FM. That recording was later made available on cassette tape only and sold via the internet and at the Together Again shows.
Air Cut Records has now issued the complete radio special on compact disc in the United Kingdom, and it's available in the UK via Amazon and iTunes. (The set is currently not available as an import on either Amazon or iTunes in the United States.)
UPDATE 7/1/16: The Point compact disc is now arriving to customers from Amazon.com and other retailers.
ORIGINAL POST: 5/13/16:
In September 1977 (after the dissolution of Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart), Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones traveled to England to begin rehearsals for their longtime friend Harry Nilsson's stage production of The Point. The show opened in London at the Mermaid Theatre on December 22, 1977. Davy played "Oblio," the hero, and Micky's part as "The Count's Kid" was created specifically so that both Jones and Dolenz could share the stage. An original cast album was released in the United Kingdom by MCA Records in January 1978. The Point closed in London on February 23, 1978.
And now, 29 years later, The Point will arrive on compact disc courtesy of Varese Vintage.
A single from the cast recording was also released by MCA (courtesy of JD at Monkee45s.net):
A live recording of a Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart show, Concert in Japan (recorded on July 20, 1976 at Yubin Chokin Hall in Tokyo, Japan), was initially available only in Japan in 1981. The album was later distributed on compact disc in the United States in 1996. This is a poster that was included inside the Japanese album.
Thanks to Donna Marino Snyder for sharing this video footage of Micky on Facebook. It was filmed at last weekend's Northeast Comic Con at Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
